Packing for church...


Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana signed a bill that will allow people to carry concealed handguns to church. The new law is the opposite of a previous law that banned concealed weapons inside churches, synagogues, and other houses of worship; but it does allow churches to choose whether to permit guns inside their facilities.

The new law requires pastors who allow concealed weapons to announce to worshipers that there might be gun-toters among them in the pews. Ah, life in the U.S. of A.

  1. As my partner's Presbyterian mother used to say, "My, my!"

    Or, as his more flamboyant Catholic aunt was known to say, "Good God, Inez! It smells like a whorehouse in here!"

    What else can one say to such a society?

  2. I envision a Louisiana seminary class on the relative merits of Smith and Wesson vs. 9 mm Glocks for standard use beneath the pastor's Geneva gown. Have the comedy writers for Saturday Night Live considered the possibilities?
